DLSU-Manila trains Ateneo faculty

TEACHERS’ TRAINING. DLSU System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC and Ateneo De Zamboanga President Fr. William Kreutz sign the Memorandum of Agreement last February 2 at the President’s Office. Looking on are CED Dean Dr. Allan Bernardo and Science Education Associate Professor Dr. Auxencia Limjap.

De La Salle University-Manila, true to its mission of providing quality education for all, approved Ateneo de Zamboanga’s (ADZ) request to help develop their faculty in the doctoral level.

Last February 2, DLSU System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC and ADZ President Fr. William Kreutz signed a Memorandum of Agreement to formalize the non-residential extension program to be provided for Ateneo teachers.

To achieve university status, ADZ is currently working on a requirement by the Commission on Higher Education to have more doctorate degree holders in its faculty.

With the assistance of DLSU-Manila’s College of Education (CED), the ADZ faculty are now able to attend classes for PhD programs in Science Education and Applied Linguistics.

This is the first extension program at the doctoral level in the Philippines, according to CED Dean Dr. Allan Bernardo. Through this program, DLSU-Manila hopes to provide as much quality education to deserving scholars.

Aside from bringing the program to the provinces, Bernardo said qualified applicants also get to avail of a number of scholarships.

CED has helped Ateneo get scholarships from the Fund Assistance to Private Education (FAPE) to finance all the students included in the program.

“The Dominicans and now, the Jesuit schools are coming to us. They see that it doesn’t matter if they are from a different congregation,” Bernardo said, adding that other academic institutions have cited CED for providing creative and alternative approaches to the delivery of graduate programs.

These schools have also cited La Salle for being very supportive, encouraging, and accomodating, he added.

Bernardo also pointed out that DLSU-Manila is in many ways privileged because of the PhD holders in its faculty roster. In CED alone, 60 percent of full time faculty have doctoral degrees.
